We open our 26th season with the bright happy Overture which features six dancers with three soloists. With its black and white tutus, and snappy footwork, you can watch the younger dancers of the 2017-18 GCB start to make their mark! The even more snappy footwork of Variable Speed will be on display with the fabulous 2nd movement of seven solos. This is a favorite ballet of the dancers. The classical
Act Two Dream Sequence is on the program with the beautiful female variations that are part of this lovely ballet.The Night Before Christmas
We are excited to announce a new ballet by Gregory Robinson and also very excited to show you excerpts from Stuart Sebastian's
. You have loved the Stuart Sebastian ballets we have performed in the past, Fast Company, Ballet a la Carte, Undine's Solo
, and these four vignettes from Act 2 of NBC will delight you as well.
We have guests with us this series; Dayton Dance Conservatory will be performing both weekends and alumni Andrew Wingert, now dancing with Oregon Ballet Theatre, will perform a contemporary solo the second weekend. Welcome back Andrew!
